Product Description

Amazon.ca

Def Leppard's rock sensibilities shot them right to the top of the charts in the 1980s. On their third album, Pyromania, the band reconciled new wave melodicism with heavy metal and catchy hooks without compromising any of its edge. The album has sold over 10 million copies, due in part to heavy rotation on MTV. But even without their ubiquitous television presence, anthems like "Rock of Ages" and "Foolin'" still had the stuff that drove the kids crazy. Bursts of screaming guitars and simple power riffs joined forces with choruses that begged to be shouted along to. Guitarists Phil Collen and Steve Clarke may have provided all the pyrotechnics on Pyromania, but the focal point of Def Leppard's sound, particularly for their teenage female fans, was singer Joe Elliott's voice (and, of course, his hair). The record--an essential brick in the foundation of '80s metal--also contains the hit "Photograph". --Steve Gdula

5.0 out of 5 stars Pyromania is Contagious July 27 2009
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Pyromania is one of those landmark albums that every rock fan should own: Over 10 million copies sold, 3 classic hit singles, and a sound that at the time was so new and fresh that everybody took notice. This is before Rick Allen's accident, before Steve Clark's death, and before Def Leppard had any serious hits. 3 would prove to be their lucky number when they set down to record their third album.

This reissue sounds fantastic. It brings the glory of Mutt Lange's groundbreaking production into daylight. The liner notes (by one of my favourite writers, Rolling Stone's David Fricke) reveal Mutt's obsession: At one point the band were laying down entire chords one note at a time in order to get the right amount of power. Their goal was to create an album that nobody had made before, and they succeeded. (Hard to believe that they would pull off the same stunt twice, and do it again on Hysteria, as different from Pyromania as it was from the bands that copied Pyromania!)

Unlike the Hysteria and Adrenalize Deluxe Editions, with Pyromania there were no extra tracks lying around unreleased, and no B-sides available. (The liner notes reveal that an 11th song was written, but not much else.) Instead the bonus second CD is filled with an awesome sounding show from the Pyromania tour. It's important to remember that no live albums or videos were released by Def Leppard until post-Hysteria, so this is the only live release featuring Rick Allen before his accident. Def Leppard sound absolutely ferocious. Joe Elliot's voice is at its vocal-cord-shredding best, gargling glass like AC/DC. Steve Clark and Phil Collen (a new addition) rip and shred on their guitars and weave them into a wall of thunder. Allen and Rick Savage keep it rolling on the rhythm section, never letting up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical metal band April 4 2014
By Wharris
Format:Audio CD
I fell in love with Def Leopard when the album "HYSTERIA" was released. It is not all clash n' brash but rather easy listening music with as much poetry, messages and nuance as Metallica. I bought every album after the concert.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic album gets the treatment it deserves April 27 2011
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1983 Pyromania was UK band Def Leppard's big break, this is the album that got them recognition in the U.S. and for many of us, the first taste of the band. Its well-known now, Pyromania was a huge hit for the band earning 10X Platinum status in States alone (its 1987 follow up, Hysteria, was even more successful earning over 12X Platinum) and it remains one of the band's best album. Def Leppard was originally part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal scene in the early 1980's but for Pyromania the band had adopter a different approach with a lighter pop sound that brought them much more commercial success. I'm not sure if Def Lepp is considered a Hair or Glam-Metal band but they did have an influence on the movement and they seem to have the respect of most metal fans. If they are, then they would certainly be one of the better hair bands, to me it's just good classic rock'n'roll. In 2009 Pyromania received the big upgrade as it was remastered and re-released with an extra live CD from the band's performance in 1983 at the L.A. Forum. This was an album which deserved a deluxe treatment; it was an important part of Leppard's history and a big album in the 80's.

Let's go through some of the songs. Pyromania starts off with the rocking "Rock Rock (Till You Drop), an energizing song and a great way to kick-start the album. "Photograph" was the second Def Leppard song I heard (first of course was "Pour Some Sugar On Me") and to this day it remains one of my favorite with what I'd describe as an instantly catchy chorus it's hard not to like this one. Then of course there are the excellent ballads "Too Late For Love" and the highly underrated "Comin' Under Fire", I always thought this song never got the recognition it deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gonna start a fire... June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Why can't it be 1983 again? Why did "alternative" music ever have to be created? Why do people laugh at my red leather jacket? I don't know, but one thing I do know is that this album still rocks after 20 years. Put in on and crank it up! And just for a moment, it will be 1983 again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great job done to a classic album! Feb. 17 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pyromania is one of those albums that any rock lover should have in their collection. I had this on vinyl and would spin it daily. I played side 1 for months before I even tried side 2. When I upgraded most of my collection to CD I was orginally put off by the sound. I didn`t find it loud enough, and it didn`t seem to carry the same punch as the LP did. When I found out this release would be remastered and would include a live show as a bonus disc, I had to jump at the chance to re-purchase it. I was not disappointed. I was very impressed with the sound, and listening to this thing on full volume really took me back to my teenage years. I have to say the bonus disc is worth the price of this package alone. Def Leppard sounded great, and it was nice to hear the older tunes that made up part of their set.

Most of the time when bands or record companies re-release older titles, they are not worth the money. Especially when you already own the original CD. In this case, the opposite is true. Even if you already own this title, buying this revamped version is worth every penny. I simply love this album, and I feel good to strongly suggest it to anyone else thinking about picking it up.
